Looks good and nice write-up, but after all that I definitely would have not put wheel weights on the outside of the rim.

I wouldn't change a thing if it was alloys personally. Im not totally sure on the mineral sprits part. The paint should be pretty thin id think anyways..

And i would just go ahead and start with like 120 grit man. 300 will take WAY to long. But if you have the time then go for it. Id do 120 then maybe 300 after that and keep going down if your want it uber smooth. But that usually not a problem if you put enough coats of paint on.

i did 3 of paint and 3 or clear coat.

Again..rolling on the paint is gonna be a LOT more difficult to get a really smooth finish from on a wheel due to all the angles and small nooks and such. I still think you should just suck it up and get a can or black Duiplicolor wheel paint. Its like 10 bucks at an auto store. Only need one can of color and one of clear.

Yea i also have alloys that i would like to paint black. If i go black would i be okay without.the tape and newspaper? I mean would it look crappy if i had a little black paint on my tires or would it eventually wear off?

Smear Vasaline on the tire around the rim. Overspray wipes off with a rag. It's how I did mine on my (now ex) Taco and about to do on my car.
